2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Informal pumpkin tasting yesterday. Weak nose with only one steady carbonation source.... Deeper golden in the glass. tinny acrid finish. Lame body and hardly a bit of pumpkin. Minimal mouthfeel/presence. If this is what people expect from a pumpkin ale in season they are missing out, Boring.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber pour with a tight white head. The nose is quite spicy with a little bit of malt sweetness through the middle. Lots of nutmeg and clove as well as some brown sugar and light crystal malt. Well-attenuated and not at all sticky. I quite like it. Itís like a lighter version of pumking. It has that richness but less of the sweetness or alcohol that that beer does. Itís pretty nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Nice amber-orange color with a little head and some good lacing.
S - The pumpkin spices dominate the aroma, with just a bit of pumpkin smell and some maltiness mixed in.
T - Initially very sweet, which is then followed by the pumpkin spices and the pumpkin flavors. The hops and the malt flavors add in to the mix to give the taste some depth.
M - Little carbonation, and medium-light bodied. Could have used a bit body to match the flavors. However, the beer still felt crisp.
D - Very smooth and very drinkable beer. Very crisp and refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was a very average beer. Light in body, flavor, and aroma. A little bit of a let down being as Blue Point has an excellent line of brews. Bottom line...not the best, not even close.
